Ambiance Systems Wins National Excellence Award from World’s leading Lighting Control Manufacturer

Clifton Park, NY – Ambiance Systems was recently recognized as a national leader of home automation and lighting control systems by Lutron Electronics Co. Lutron awarded 12 winners at the 2005 Excellence Awards at a ceremony held September 8th at the Indiana State Museum during the CEDIA Expo. Ambiance Systems received the Best 4 Series Project Award (4 Series is Lutron’s most economical total home lighting control system). The Excellence Awards honor a select group of Lutron’s residential systems providers for outstanding HomeWorks® projects completed between June 1, 2004 and June 30, 2005. A panel of industry journalists judged dozens of submissions and selected a total of 12 award winners. http://www.lutron.com/cedia05/default.asp?page=winners2005

The Winning Project

The Timbers is an energy efficient, award winning, Showcase house built by Capital Construction. The initial requirements were to integrate technology that would assist in the principles of the Green building movement: energy efficiency and air quality. Since the project was also categorized as a luxury home it was just as important to give the client a high end entertainment system that would not clash with the Adirondack style inspired interior design.

A single touch screen interface was installed in the kitchen. All six of the radiant heating zones, as well as, the one cooling zone were incorporated into the system using communicating thermostats. The kitchen thermostat utilizes a remote temperature sensor so that it can be "remoted" to the basement, freeing the area of unsightly wall clutter. We programmed lifestyle based set-point changes impacting energy usage through convenience, i.e. "Goodnight," "Goodbye" and "Hello." With one touch, an entire household zone can be immediately initiated. All zones can be centrally adjusted from the kitchen's touch screen

This project was also a finalist in the Consumer Electronics Association’s Mark of Excellence “Home of the Year” award earlier this year.
